Established in 2003, Flying Syrup was formed through a mutual love for “Britpop” music between all members involved. At earlier stages of the band’s formation, Flying Syrup extensively covered various forms of rock music ranging from the more obscure, to mainstream, to everything in-between. The band cites Paul McCartney, Franz Ferdinand and The Kooks as sources of inspiration, amongst others.
Eventually, Bruce Nicholas (frontman and permanent resident of Singapore) took to writing original music for the group. In January 2013, Flying Syrup released their self-titled debut album, available on all digital platforms. The band held two launches, one at Home Club, and the other at Timbre. Since then, the band has continued to perform at various locations throughout Singapore.
